As an internationally accredited school (from both the Council of International Schools and International Baccalaureate Organisation), Norwood Morialta High School is committed to providing opportunities for students to develop as active global citizens, empowering them to make a difference in this changing world.
As part of our commitment to internationalism, Norwood Morialta High School hosted the first Global Summit of its kind in South Australia in 2019 with the theme “Enriching Humanity through Innovation and Entrepreneurship”.
Whilst we acknowledge the importance for young people to learn about diverse cultures and perspectives, we also want them to feel empowered to have a collective voice and the necessary capabilities to take action and make a difference. The Global Summit provided students to feel empowered to enrich humanity through global connections and deeper understanding.
During this 5-day event students were supported to develop a deeper understanding of the United Nations Global Goals by working in culturally mixed teams (with other passionate students from around the world) to explore possible local and global solutions. This rich learning program featured keynote speakers, interactive workshops, opportunities for sharing cultures and local cultural excursions.
Approximately 60 students and 20 staff from 12 schools from around the world participated in this exciting venture with students from Norwood Morialta High School. The visiting schools were from Brazil, Italy, Germany, Greece, Japan, China, Vietnam, Hawai’i, New Zealand, and Queensland.
